Paint! kudos to the team @ bradco for the paint (Gprocket)

I'm not sure yet on the GTA grille. it's not a GTA and the stock grille looks pretty cool with the horizontal bars. once it's back together i'll probably try it both ways.

I haven't made much progress on the car. But i did find a place to coat the old tri-y header. I just couldn't put the it back in being all rusty. after sandblasting, steam cleaning and coating it looks better than new (and Better than chrome IMO!)

I had my new race car header coated too.

Looks nice in black, quite a build. Thanks for the update.

1973 Spider, up and running and smoking . 1966 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce, $500 junk yard find. I probably overpaid...(not really).

(extremely) slow progress...but progress none the less! the garage is now empty while i do some work to finish the interior. but things are still on track to get the car back on the road in the spring. I drove one of GProcket's hot rod GTV's this past week and it's remotivated me!

Beautiful car! I think it looks great with the white nose.

Curious on a few points -- how did you strip the engine compartment? Stripping disc on a small angle grinder?

Also, how did you build your wooden dolly? Can't quite tell from the pictures. It's sitting on the jack points in the front and rear, right? Is it just resting on top of the upright (4x4?) or did you hollow out the top of the 4x4 some? And you used 2x4's (with gussets) for the frame, right? I'm about to build one myself.

Do you have a build thread on your race car? I'd like to see it if you do.

Thanks!

Morning

Thanks for the nice comments. I stripped it mostly with a flap disk and an angle grinder. Just have to be careful not to use an aggressive grit or too much time.

The dolly us just some 4x4 verticals tied together with 2x4's. the hollow's aren't hollowed out, but there are some small chunks screwed onto the end to keep the jack points from sliding off when the car is moved. I additionally used a bit of metal strapping through the jackpoint to hold the car down. the dolly is a great thing, just be sure to get good casters! the cheap ones will make it impossible to roll around.

Here's a "few" pics on my race car.

Lovely build and very motivating as I just picked up a 1967 Giulia Sprint GT Veloce that's in need of a complete restoration.

I can't tell in the photos, but the Veloce three bar grill and heart grill look nice on yours. Did you repolish the grilles? If so, would you mind sharing your process? I've been researching on how to refurbish all the trim work and have found several random threads with varying methods, but none seem to be very detailed.

I'm looking to build something similar to yours--sort of street car with a little track inspiration.
